When you remove the tail piece, also a good time to consider doing the late
style center locker (you can drive the dog clutch roll pin out, and it will
sit in the bottom of the trans tail vs fishing with a magnet for it). On the
pre 84 urq's, you also want to remove the spring that is under the boot of
the locking shaft, and replace the boot (you can use a brake caliper boot for
this). That spring was deleted in 84> center lockers.

Just to add to the excellent description.
I also changed the bearing at the same time.. sort of while I'm in there.
